An outright Victory

The Victory Juntion Run was - well - spectacular. From the NASCAR-style worship service to Richard Petty waiving the green flag to start the race to Kyle and Pattie high-fiving every finisher it was better than any of us could have imagined. Race photos will be up on the site in just a few days. []

The day was perfect. Cool, crisp, and sunny. The course, although challenging, seemed to satisfy everyone. The finish, and the "bridge" in the center of the camp was the perfect backdrop. I truly can't think of a more meaningful finish line.

The participants raised over $65,000 for the camp. An unbelieveable number for the first year.

If you're reading this: you simply MUST come to the race in 2007. You just have to!

ORN: 0 Saturday or Sunday. Probably 0 on Monday too.

I wanted SOOOO badly to join the fun in NC (I'm a huge NASCAR nut), but I ran out of vacation time and in no way was in good enough shape for a half!! I've got three 5K's under my belt, and at least one a month planned for the next 4 months- hopefully I will be able to join ya'll next year!!
